SNPedia is a wiki investigating human
genetics with information about the effects of variations in DNA, citing
peer-reviewed scientific publications.
SNPedia all: SNPedia all SNPs (including empty pages)
The track "SNPedia all" shows all SNPs that exist as a page in
SNPedia.com. As SNPedia's user collaboration grows, more
detail will be added to SNPedia.com pages. For now, most of the pages are auto-generated by bots
and have empty pages. According to Mike Carioso (SNPedia.com founder), SNPedia entries are mostly
ClinVar entries marked as pathogenic with at least 4 stars as defined by the
ClinVar review status.
SNPedia with text: SNPedia pages with manually typed text
The track "SNPedia with text" is a subset of the "SNPedia all" track. This track
displays only SNPedia entries with a text page that was created manually by a user who typed in
some text (approximately 5,000 entries). In the browser, click on the "configure" button
and select "next/previous item navigation" to show clickable arrows in the browser which
will jump to the next or previous item.
Clicks on the features show the text from the SNPedia.com page and a link to the original page.
Display Conventions and Configuration
Genomic locations of SNPedia entries are labeled with the dbSNP ID.
In the track "SNPedia all SNPs", the features are colored based on the SNPedia microarray
annotation: grey for SNPs that are on no microarray, dark blue for Affymetrix, dark purple for
Illumina and black for features on both arrays.
The mappings displayed in this track were used as provided in the SNPedia GFF file.
For the "SNPedia with text" track, all SNPedia pages were downloaded and their content
checked with a script that tries to remove pages that were auto-generated and not created manually
by a user.
Thanks to Mike Cariaso for help with the GFF download and Max Haeussler at UCSC for building this
